Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Universe Online A new set of microchips designed at the California Institute of Technology pave the way for a new generation of devices. The chips created by the Caltech engineers generate and radiate high-frequency electromagnetic waves known as terahertz (THz). These waves fall between microwaves and far-infrared radiation and are able to penetrate materials without damaging them, unlike X-rays. The new microchips could be incorporated...

Singapore, Oct 22, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Fujitsu Semiconductor Asia Pte Ltd (FSAL) has demonstrated the transmission of >100Gbps over a single CEI-28G-VSR channel, effectively quadrupling the data rate throughput defined by the Optical Internetworking Forum (OIF) for this chip-to-chip electrical interface. This serves as a benchmark for what can be achieved over short-reach electrical channels using the same field-proven CMOS converter technology deployed in long-haul optical transport...


Word of the Day
toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
